Re: Kiteboard model and size advice for Big air, choppy 20kts average

I like my raptor Ltd in 132. But I like my foil freerace carbon rig even more. In 10-20kts nothing will beat foil in choppy waters. You’ll easily get 2-3meters over guys on TTs in same conditions.

Re: Do you Woo? Thoughts on Woo's Reliability/Accuracy

if you are on a quest to get the numbers our of your jumps you do not have many options... either use accelerometer-based device or do photorecording.. anything else (gps, pressure altimeters, etc) is just not precise enough. Photorecording often will give you same or worse deviation, unless you go ...

Re: Selecting board for boosting on Hydrofoil

You need a fortified board for big air. Pure race boards will not last long. The hypermiler in the video would crack under the front foot eventually and/or would break the rail. Ask me how I know :) ( broke 2 of those )

Re: Core Bar decision - Sensor 3Pro vs 2SPro

I does! As long as you make sure the small stopper ball can turn with the QR when auto untwisting, you can do unlimited rotations and will get NO line twist in any line! I think that's the key point.. I definitely had this "twisting" issue starting to manifest itself 4-6months in.. with Sensor 2S c...

Re: Kite companies - please stop the Air Style / Big Air hype!

sounds like humorous trolling post, but lets pretend that you are serious.. 1. Board offs pose a risk of dropping a board and potentially injuring someone or something near the rider. Wake style boards with boots are safer since they are designed to stay on your feet, and higher rockered board are b...

Re: Need help with landing jumps (video)

Once you have swung under the kite deniska is probably correct to say that the only way to retrieve it is a downloopi/heliloop. However, having said that if you move the kite early enough with double movements you should be able to keep the kite in front of you. Have a look at big aerial transition...

Re: Need help with landing jumps (video)

Indulang, the figure of eight is as you start coming down. It is roughly the equivalent of a heli-loop, but less risky. But you have to do it really quickly, which is only possible with a small fast turning kite. It works for smaller jumps but for everything over 10-12m you get pendulum effect and ...

Re: Need help with landing jumps (video)

as others said, dont beat yourself up, very few people have the skills to land soft on 5m kite, this would imply precisely timed heliloops. unless you weight 40 kilos, you should be on a bigger kite in 30kts.. like for 80kg it's a 9m.. 9m is the golden size, imho.. 7m and smaller starts dropping you...

Re: Advice For Boosting Large Foil Kite with Twin Tip

The biggest issue with boosting on big foil kites - is keeping the edge while it's climbing to 12.. You can mitigate it with hardware and technique... definitely consider installing bigger fins.. some people go as far as custom builds https://www.pbkiteboarding.com/kiteboarding-kitesurfing/kiteboard...

Re: Another UK Fatality

I am sorry to hear of both fatalities, strength to their family and friends. It is terrible hear. Unless it is a special case, I wouldn't recommend kiters use inflatable belt PFDs. There are intrinsic PFDs that are in place and work whenever needed and those that require manipulation, donning, infl...
